I have fond memories playing Link’s Awakening on my Game Boy Color. I greatly enjoyed exploring Koholint Island and the mystery surrounding the Windfish and its egg, which sat upon the top of Mount Tamaranch. DeviantArt user Pertheseus has constructed a piece of art that captures the dream-like feel of the game, as well as the grandeur of the Windfish.

My favorite part about this piece is the “big” feeling it gives off; this giant creature — given size perspective, thanks to a much smaller Link hitching a ride alongside it — barrels through the clouds, while still maintaining a majestic quality. The usage of lighter colors, such as powder blues and whites, also adds to the grandiose feel to the Windfish.

    Awesome painting!

    I’m glad the Virtual Console exists so I could play Link’s Awakening. I didn’t have a GBC but I have a 3DS.
